Powerful Wings (Ex)

An edict dragon’s wings are primary natural attacks. The dragon can make two additional attacks of opportunity with its wings each turn.

Scrivener (Su)

An edict dragon’s tail slap is a touch attack that deals no damage but instead writes a rune on the target that imposes a –2 penalty to AC for 1 minute. A target may bear only one edict dragon rune at a time. The dragon can also use its tail as a mundane writing utensil.

Truespeech (Su)

An edict dragon can speak with any creature that has a language, as if using tongues.


Environment any (Axis)
Organization solitary
Treasure triple

These planar dragons establish bastions of order and transform lawless towns into shining examples of urban grandeur.
